London 1608, 1609, 1610: Robert Barker. Full-Leather. Very Good. Small quarto (8 1/2" x 6 1/2") bound in contemporary suede covered boards; the "Breeches" Bible, so called from the passage in Genesis 3:7, "the sewed figge tree leaves together and made themselves breeches." Bound together with The Book of Common Prayer (lacking title page), The Apocrypha, The New Testament, title page dated 1610, the Concordance, dated 1608 and the Psalms, dated 1609 (final leaf lacking). Printed just a few years before the King James Version, the present Bible comes near the end of the Geneva printings; printed in double column format. A few shoulder-notes shaved closely, owner notes on a few blank areas and a few corners lost, not affecting text. Expertly re-backed to style, in matching suede; newer end papers. Overall, a very good, handsome copy of an historically important Bible. (Inventory #: 7582)
